Get the entire history of the best trucks on the road.

The International Truck and Engine Corporation has built the trucks that have been a staple of both agricultural and industrial trucking for nearly 100 years. International Harvester Trucks: The Complete History tells the complete story of the light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks, vans, and station wagons built by International Harvester during over a century of history, starting from the company's early days, through its first truck model in 1907, and right up to the present.

The focus is firmly on the trucks themselves including collectible machines such as the Travelall and Scout. Author Patrick R. Foster is one of the world's premier transportation historians. His accessible writing style, illustrated with hundreds of never-before-seen archival photographs, makes this book the best examination of one of the world's most prolific truck manufacturers.

Praise For International Harvester Trucks: The Complete History

"The Hemmings nation will likely be most enthralled by Foster's coverage of the mass-market rigs that International built for so many years. There's a lot of narrative text n the book and a selection of historic and advertising photos, and we've got to tell you, a lot of them evoke some real nostalgia. How many of you remember when bakeries delivered freshly baked bread to your doorstep?" - Hemmings Motor News
